Pro-abortion politicians will often say to us, “My office does not involve any decision-making about abortion.” Our response? Your position on abortion says a lot about your character and worldview. If you cannot oppose an act of violence against the most defenseless children, on what basis will you oppose violence against the rest of us?
Your position on abortion also tells us what you think of government. A nation either recognizes that the right to life comes from God, or thinks that it comes from its own government. Whether a public official is actually going to vote on the legality of abortion is beside the point. Before we cast our vote for our leaders, we need to know what kind of authority they think we are giving them.
